In 1971, the festival band M was everywhere, playing alongside such luminaries as Creation, Too Much, Murahatchibu and Miki Curtis’ newly heavy version of Samurai. In early April 1971, M performed at the celebrated ‘Rock Invitation Number One’, at Hibiya Outdoor Hall, thereafter being asked back for ‘Rock Invitation Number Two’, on June 26th. Later the same year, M recorded a self-titled LP for RCA Records said to have contained several cover versions. Thereafter, the band split. In 2002CE, the re-issue label Hagakure released one of their festival shows under the name 1971 LIVE.
